Looks like I'll need to do some shopping. Two rings on the Mic end and only one on the extension.
Yup, there it is.
Here are some neat options, gold plated... Amazon.com: iMBAprice - Pro iMBA Series Stereo Audio Cable - 12 Feet Gold Plated 3.5mm Male To 3.5mm Female Extension Stereo Audio Cable - Lifetime Warranty: Electronics
Super cheap option. Amazon.com: C2G / Cables to Go 13787 6 feet 3.5 mm Male/Female Stereo Audio Extension Cable Black: Electronics
The one I have was less than $5 so it isn't super vital. We aren't talking cinema-quality here.
